Support group: The first heterogeneous catalyst for the deoxydehydration (DODH) of glycols into olefins is reported. A carbon-supported perrhenate material was found to catalyze the reductive conversions of styrene diol, tetradecane diol, and diethyl tartrate into their respective olefins with high chemo-, regio-, and stereoselectivity. Effective reductants for this DODH reaction include H2, alcohols, and tetralin.
